I bought this fragrance on a whim. I like raspberry and I thought why not I’ll try a small batch. In the bottle I loved the smell, and it holds true in the soap so I’m really happy!
Raspberry Porter: It’s a fresh combination of Sun ripened Raspberry, Squeezed Lemon and a winey fruit scent with hints of Green Leaf and Rose.
It’s a clean and simple design (did some soaps like this last year), but I love the look. Added jojoba beads to it for look and exfoliating.

This is by far my most popular “pine” scent soap that I make. Same design as last year. I really like the different green colored cubes embedded in another green base.
Cedar & Balsam: A camphoraceous woody blend of pine, eucalyptus, cedarwood; finished with sweet balsam. This fragrance is composed of top notes of orange, raspberry, and plum; middle notes of lily, carnation, and hyacinth; base notes of balsam, pine, eucalyptus, and cedarwood.
I had some left over cubes and a tree cookie cutter so I decided to make a small batch of tree embeds. Didn’t quite work out how I imagined, so next year I’ll just stick to the same design I’ve done the past three years.

Snow anyone? Okay, so I’m not quite ready for snow either, but I really like the look of these.
I was playing around with a technique here. It didn’t work quite how I was hoping, but I’ll probably play around with it some more after the winter season is over.
Frost & Snowdrops: a romantic musk & sandalwood background, while providing the aroma of delicate winter flowers.
This turned out better than I thought! I didn’t realize that the blue would morph. When I cut it it was green! Luckily it went back to blue…not quite the same color I started with, but hey it’s blue!!!
Beneath the Stars: An enveloping blend of grape, peach and plum with sparkling citrus, rose and musk.

This winter I did a bunch of different fragrances. I was trying out a bunch of new scents to see how they went over. The next few weeks I’ll post the results! First up:
Sangria Punch: a refreshing melody beginning with top notes of grape, orange, lemon, lime, and apple, followed by middle notes of pomegranate and blackberries; sitting on a dry down of sugar.
I was really happy with how this soap turned out. It’s a simple two layer in the pot swirl, and when I cut it it was just pretty! I really liked it.
Cranberry Relish: a wonderful fresh, tart cranberry.
